Does anyone know if Thunderbolt 3 extension cables (female/male) exist?
I got this HyperDrive Solo hub to place the ports I need on the front for easy access. Since I wasn't aware of the difference between Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 Type C, I got this Type C Male to Female USB 3.1 Extender in the hopes of having a neat setup.
This. (Both are Space Gray but don't look alike)
It looks good in my opinion, but turns out, none of the ports work, although it does light up. When I plugged the hub directly to the ports on the back of the Mac, all the ports worked, hence me discovering the difference between the two and rendering my little hack useless... unless there is that Thunderbolt 3 extension cable I'm looking for but haven't been able to find AT ALL. I've only found regular male/male cables but the hub has a male connector so they don't work for me unless there's something like a female/female plug to turn one male side of the cable to female, which haven't seen either.
